and it is illegal
Good morning. The arrests conducted early this morning by our agents in San Juan and the charges outlined in the indictment are the culmination of a two-year undercover investigation that targeted the alleged corrupt activities of state and local law enforcement officials in Puerto Rico. As mentioned by Attorney General Holder, the investigation, known as “Operation Guard Shack” is the largest law enforcement corruption investigation in the 102-year history of the FBI. It involved an unprecedented level of logistical coordination of resources, technical assistance by more than 30 of the FBI’s 56 field divisions, and hand-in-hand coordination with the Department of Justice, the United States Attorney’s Office in San Juan, and the Police Department of Puerto Rico. At some point, all agents assigned to the San Juan office assisted in the investigation.
The operation began at 3 a.m., when 65 tactical teams hit the streets. But the takedown represented the work of more than just HRT and SWAT. On hand were a range of Bureau personnel—crisis negotiators, evidence response team members, canines and their handlers, and some 80 medical personnel from first responders and nurses to a trauma surgeon and a veterinarian.

There's a pretty big and obvious difference.
The DOJ was paid to prosecute copy right infringements.
The DOJ was paid not to prosecute bankers.
Political donations determine the politicians who in turn place the heads of agencies like the DOJ .. so the corporate master says don't look at the banks, the politician says ok, the DOJ being a good dog follows the commands.
